& hazard identification
The objectives of System Vulnerability and Hazard identification are threefold:
Identification of extreme weather events to be analysed by RAIN, by defining appropriate intensity thresholds and by taking into account regional differences in vulnerability and climate.
Assessment of the present state-of-the-art forecast systems for extreme weather and their characteristics, to address and estimate their predictive skill.
Assessment of the frequency of weather hazards throughout Europe for both the present and future climate.
